We get hurricane looking storms every so often. I don't know specifics I just know they occur.








Couple.

Hi Tyr Sog, great photos that you linked to your post!

By the way, great name you have, if it refers to what I think it does. Small city in Yabon, right?

Classic low pressure system.

We see them all the time to the south of Australia, usually bringing in cold and/or occluded fronts to the mainland

I live on the gulf coast and have been through many hurricanes....Water is the fuel for hurricanes. You CANNOT have a hurricane without water. You could have a hell of a storm there....but no hurricane.

It was a good blow about 9 this morning when it came off Lake Michigan. I live on the lake and it was quite a storm to watch. 6 years ago one came off the lake with 106 mile per hour winds made a real mess this mornings might have been 40 MPH and lots of rain for about an hour

Personally, I would have to agree with Oz Weatherman - you're seeing a low pressure system.

Off topic (sorry) - Ophiuchuc13 - your signature question "IF I AM YOU AND YOU ARE ME THEN WHAT ARE WE??? "

The answer, if it hasn't been answered a million times already by other rabid John Lennon/Beatles fans, is: We are all together. The opening lyrics to "I Am The Walrus" by the Beatles. "I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together".

Here's a link that talks about what hurricanes need to exist. Whatever the case is in Michigan, I hope it turns out ok for everyone.

Look if you ever see a hurricane form over the great lake s or land here is what you have to do.Put your head between your legs and kiss your but goodbye because something will have gone terribly wrong on this planet and we won't be here long enough to to figure out why. Although seeing a hurricane form over the great lakes would be something to see.

What you are seeing is a Doppler radar signature which is rainfall. and the "eye" is an area where there is no rain.

You can keep an eye on this as much as you like, but you will not see a hurricane form.







The "clear" area may be full of rain. Research attenuation. An area of heavy rain can block the radar signal from getting through It is a well known danger for pilots using weather radar. Often what appears to be the thinnest area to penetrate weather can be hiding the most intense rain.
And what you see that may make you think cyclonic rotation is the coriolis force at work. Kind of a downer for the biblical version of cosmology guys out there since it results from the earth rotating.
And for those who think a hurricane can't form on land, take I-64 West out of Huntington, WV about 60 miles or I-15 to Zion National Park, Utah.

I remember coming home from the pawn shop two years ago after losing some money to some well planned lies. A lot of money. I felt like collapsing. There was a weather system that was ignored by the media that day. A tornado was spawned from the ground after an earthquake near Graceland. At the moment the quake struck, and I mean the moment, I felt my knees go weak, as I finally aired my complaint on line. A huge storm that some were calling an inland hurricane was formed and some bloggers started writing about it. All I know is that I told the pawn star that it was now officially 'showtime' and that I was now your biggest problem, and I don't even think of you.... It's hard to explain the whole thing, really. I explained to the junkie behind the counter that he'd been charging me interest on items that were already gone, noticed that the Mossad banner had been removed from the wall. It had read 'This business is protected by the MOSSAD'. The place of 'business' is on Graceland Street. Oh, Muskegon is near water, for those who keep on saying it has to be near water etc...however the radar does seem quite normal.

There's some fine print in a newspaper used in a movie from 1964 or so, wherein an article title reads 'Hurricane devastates midwest'. Points for anyone who knows the movie....

I am aware that this makes me crazy in everyone's eyes. Some things only God understands.

Its not just any water. Hurricanes, cyclones and typhoons all originate over large warm water bodies. They are specifically tropical born storms. Any other system, not born in the tropics, is a low pressure system.

Ive actually worked and been through a couple of cyclones here in Australia. I think I know what causes them. If I didnt then I wouldnt be in the job Im in now

Extratropical cyclones encompass a class of storms with many names. Although they are sometimes referred to as " cyclones", this is imprecise; cyclone applies to numerous types of low pressure areas The descriptor extratropical signifies that this type of cyclone generally occurs outside the tropics in the middle latitudes of Earth. The term mid- atitude cyclones may be used because of where they form; "post-tropical cyclones" if extratropica[ 1][ 2] transition has occurred.[ 1][ 2] Weather forecasters transition has occurred Weather forecasters and the general public often describe them as"depressions" or "lows". Terms like frontal cyclone frontal depression, frontal low, extratropical low non-tropical low are often used as well.


extratropical cyclone

There is also such a thing as a cyclonic thunderstorm. It is possible for any low pressure system to resemble a hurricane because a hurricane is a gigantic low pressure system. Gales are also classified as an extratropucal cyclone. Gales do occur over the great lakes.

Yes, a cat 5 hurricane is going to further destroy all of Michigan! Run to Canada, if it's even safe!

It is a scientific FACT that a hurricane cannot form on land. Maybe there is something by another name, but a HURRICANE MUST have warm oceanic water, and plenty of it......

it's called an inland hurricane or super derecho.

There is a clear difference between that incredibly slow rotation and the rotation of a hurricane. The winds were freaking, but the structure and rotation hardly resembled a hurricane.

Regardless, it is not a hurricane. A hurricane is a tropical storm with a certain minimum wind speed that is fueled by warm oceanic water. The word "hurricane" is the name of a very specific type of weather phenomenon. If it is not fueled by warm oceanic water it cannot be a hurricane.

Hopefully that is not difficult to understand for people here. Saying a storm that forms over land is a hurricane is like saying hydrogen is water but without the oxygen. Its still just plain old hydrogen.

I'm just telling it the way it was reported. Local news, weather channel, NOAH, CNN and FOX reported on the "inland hurricane" or super derecho. They called it that and that is how it went down on the state farm insurance report. It took out my garage, the end of my house and almost every tree and electric pole in my area. It took about 1 hour to fully pass over my house the worst part took 20 minutes.

Not an expert on it, just calling it what I was told to call it.
